Puff Diddly Pooh's son Justin Combs has received a scholarship to play football for UCLA. We talked about this a long time ago, but it's got some people upset because he obviously doesn't need it. Diddy has made an estimated $45 million over the past year alone, according to Forbes.com. As one UCLA student put it, "UCLA's athletic department needs to consider the fact that perhaps there is another athlete on the football team, who could perhaps really use this scholarship." However, here's how the school defended its decision, "Unlike need-based scholarships, athletic scholarships are awarded to students strictly on the basis of their athletic and academic ability, and not on a student’s financial need. Athletic scholarships, such as those awarded to football or basketball players, do not rely on state funds." There's no word from Diddy on the "controversy". Do you think he should give the money back?
Snowboarding superstar Shaun White aka "The Flying Tomato" is hooking up with "Maxim" magazine's hottest woman in the world, Bar Refaeli in the Hot Couple Alert. Witnesses say they were hanging out at a club in New York City on Sunday night, where they were, "dancing, hugging and kissing" well into Monday morning. In fact, as the New York Post elegently put it, "They hit the dance floor, where they were going for the gold in the canoodle-a-thon. They were all over each other. They were dancing, hugging, kissing — you name it." Shaun walked Bar to his car later in the night and let her drive it home. He then went back in the club to party with two other women. Nice. Ironically, Bar did a photo shoot for this years Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue where she posed with other Olympic athletes like Michael Phelps, Rafael Nadal and Chris Paul for a pictorial called "Bar & the Boys." Shaun wasn't included.

Justin Bieber can still ignite teenage hysteria. He certainly did in Norway. Norwegian police were reportedly "on the verge of declaring a state of emergency in Oslo" yesterday, after tens of thousands of fans flooded the city. Justin was there to perform a free six-song set for a primetime special on NBC and the chaos got so bad that local officials asked him to take the stage early before all hell broke loose. At one point, a "security officer" claimed that "about 15 girls had passed out." Justin was safely tucked away at a "secret location," waiting for a helicopter to pick him up and take him to the stage. But he was aware of the insanity. He Tweeted, "Norway: Please listen to the police. I don't want anyone getting hurt. I want everything to go to plan but your safety must come first. For the show to happen you must all listen to the police. We're all concerned for your safety and I want what is best for you. Please listen." The performance did happen, and it'll be featured on the special "Justin Bieber Believe: All Around the World" on Thursday, June 21st.
Mary J. Blige has learned a valuable lesson about running a charity. Her foundation was slapped with a $250,000 lawsuit. Mary J. Blige and Steve Stoute Foundation for the Advancement of Women Now (FFAWN) is being sued by TD Bank over a $250,000 loan it took out back in June 2011. The bank claims FFAWN agreed to repay it by December 2011, but so far, TD Bank has only received $368.33. Mary J said, "As Founder and CEO of FFAWN, I am ultimately responsible for anything that goes wrong. The problem is that I didn't have the right people in the right places doing the right things. This should have never been allowed to happen, but it did and now we are fixing it." She has hired a team of experts to clean up the financial mess.
On "Lost",Jack and Charlie never had major beef. But apparently, this is not the case in real life. Dominic Monaghan, who played the heroin-addicted rock star Charlie made some very serious claims about Matthew Fox on Twitter the other day. It all started when one of Dominic's female followers asked him to make Matthew get a Twitter account. Dom's response was, "He beats women. No thanks." Of course I'm thinking of last August when Matthew got hammered in Cleveland and then tried to get onto a party bus full of people he didn't even know. The female bus driver tried to stop him, but he allegedly attacked her, hitting her in the breasts and groin. But apparently, that's not all Dominic was talking about because the woman said, "I know it was wrong but what about all those good times you had together?" And Dominic responded, "How do you know we ever did? You don't know either of us. He beats women. Not isolated incidents. Often. Not interested." Wow. But guess what? That Tweet was deleted! Hmm?
We used to know Kim Kardashian mainly as one of Paris Hilton's lesser friends. Now Kim is everywhere and Paris is nowhere. Kim has a successful TV empire while Paris can't keep a show on the air. Kim has a huge A-list boyfriend while Paris dates some unknown club DJ. And the list goes on. Anybody think there's a chance this doesn't bother Paris? Of course it does. In fact, Paris is livid about it. A source says, "Kim will always be a sore spot for Paris, because she believes that without her Kim wouldn't have the success she has in her life. "Paris thinks Kim wasn't a loyal friend to her and only used her to gain fame, and that she is ungrateful for everything Paris claimed to do for her. Paris looks at Kim's life, and the fact that she is constantly featured on the cover of entertainment and fashion magazines while she isn't and it stings." Another source says Paris is working her tail off to make her upcoming album a success. "Paris knows she has a lot riding on this project because her last reality show was canceled, and she needs to do something to re-invent herself."
Justin Bieber has a new single out from his upcoming cd, "Believe" - this one is called "Die In Your Arms"
OH NO SHE DID'NT.....lol. But really. If you haven't hear the story, here it is in a nutshell. Madonna was performing one of her MANY hit songs, "Express Yourself" while performing in Israel. Halfway through the song, she switches over to Lady Gaga's "Born This Way." Some people think she is trying to say that the songs are exactly the same and take a dig a Gaga. Now, I'm never one for this kinda beef, but what can I say, Madonna is right. The songs are exactly the same. Of course, that's just MY opinion. Take a listen here and see what you think. The song transition is right at about the 1:08 mark so you don't have to wait long.
Justin Bieber is being accused of putting a guy in the hospital. Yeah, for real. Justin and Selena Gomez were at a mall near his home in Calabasas, California on Sunday. As they were heading to their car, a paparazzi scumbag tried to take their picture. A scuffle ensued, and the photographer called 911. By the time police got there, Justin and Selena were gone. But the guy was taken by ambulance to a nearby hospital where he was treated for pain to his upper torso. Police are investigating, and they want to talk to Justin and Selena. Now here's what witnesses had to say about the incident: The guy was blocking Justin's car and he asked him to move. When he wouldn't, Justin got out of his car and that's when things got physical. But get this: A lawyer who just happened to be on the scene walked up to the photographer after Justin left and advised him that he could make a nice wad of cash if he called an ambulance and filed a police report. However, here's a somewhat ironic video of Justin training with Mike Tyson just days before the paparazzi throwdown.
On Friday night, Beyoncé performed for the first time since giving birth. Jay-Z seemed to dig it. In a Kanye-esque Tweet, he said, "Beyoncé is the best performer in the world. Period." This was the first of four shows Beyoncé did over the weekend in Atlantic City. Michelle Obama and her daughters Sasha and Malia were in the audience for the second night on Saturday. "People" magazine recently asked Michelle who she'd want to be, if she could be anyone else and she said, "If I had some gift, I'd be Beyoncé. I'd be some great singer."
Last week Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher getting both attended a birthday party for the man who officiated their wedding. Witnesses say they greeted each other with a "60-second embrace." A source adds, "They are still desperately in love and could be on for a reconciliation. The divorce isn't being processed right now." Ashton also gave a speech for the guest of honor, during which he said, "I've made all these horrendous mistakes in the last year." Ashton's voice started to break as he spoke and he just fell into tears. He sat down to a round of applause while Demi just looked frozen. Supposedly, Ashton and Demi have gotten together at least one or two other times this month to decide, "where they go from here."

It appears that Robert Pattinson will not be joining the cast of the "Hunger Games" sequels. He says, "I saw all these things about me being cast in 'The Hunger Games'. I was kind of curious for a second. So I called my agent. My agent was like, 'No. No one's going to offer you that part.' I was like, 'Thanks for the reassurance.'"
It's hard to really put into words how much gratitude I have, as well as many other Americans have, for the military. I think sometimes people take them for granted. You don't really quite let it sink in that these people are risking their lives every single day, to save ours. Freedom is NOT free, it comes with a price. A heavy price. Not everyone's family gets to see their loved ones come home. Every time you think about how stressful YOUR job is and what you go through, just think of these brave men and women. They deal with those stresses times 10. So on this Memorial Day, if you see anyone that was or still is serving in the U.S. Military, shake their hand, smile at them, say thank you, even a nod of the head to say "I'm grateful" is all they need. Thank you for all your sacrifices and hard work. Your dedication is truly amazing. HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY. Now watch this video and cry......
Britney Spears and Demi Lovato had their first day on the set of "X Factor" yesterday and according to some reports, it didn't go well for Britney. Anonymous sources claim Britney "walked off the set" because she was upset after a contestant butchered her song, "Hold It Against Me." Are they just trying to make her appear too fragile? Well, there may be another explanation. Another anonymous source says she wasn't upset about the song, she just "needed a break." Britney confirmed this on Twitter late last night, "'Britney walks off??? LOL. I was just taking a little break people. I am having the BEST time!!!"
Kanye West is sitting down for a heart-to-heart with Kris Jenner, but it's not to get permission to marry Kim Kardashian. It was much more serious. Kanye is begging Kris to give up plastic surgery because he doesn't want her to die like his mom did. Kanye's mother Donda died in November of 2007, after getting a tummy tuck, breast reduction and lipo. She was only 58. A source says, "Kanye’s gotten very close to Kris. She's become like a second mom to him, and he couldn't bear losing another person in his life to plastic surgery."

Trey Songz and his entourage arrived and he and about ten guys just took over the VIP area. But when Trey and his boys learned that there were video cameras recording just a few tables away, they flipped out! The source said, "Trey went over and told them to 'Get the f*** out.'

Speaking of Will, he reunited with DJ Jazzy Jeff the other night to perform at an after-party for the "Men In Black 3" premiere. Check out a clip of them busting out "Men In Black."
Usher is in court right now with his ex-wife Tameka to handle custody of their two sons. Tameka's lawyer dropped a bombshell in court yesterday accusing him of sleeping with one of her bridesmaids while they were married. Usher was being cross-examined by her lawyer yesterday in court about his claim that Tameka brings nannies in and out of their children's lives.

She also claims that the changes she's made since she got pregnant are permanent, "I'm not going to party hard anymore, even after the baby is born. Being a mom changes you."

After a record 132.2 million votes were cast, Phillip Phillips beat out Jessica Sanchez to become your new "American Idol" for season 11. Once the chaos dies down and he's done doing publicity, Phillip will get the kidney surgery he's been needing. This might cause him to miss a few dates on this summer's "Idols Live" tour. In addition to some soon-to-be forgotten Idols, last night's finale also put the spotlight on some already-forgotten Idols. Ace Young (season 5) brought his girlfriend Diana DeGarmo (season 3) up onstage to propose to her. She said yes by the way.
Kanye West is so intent on making Kim Kardashian his bride that he has asked her to marry him over and over again in the Big Fat Rumor of the Day! Problem is, Kim does not take Kanye seriously, and won't until he delivers his proposal with a little more pomp and circumstance. "Kim has tried to discourage it, but Kanye has said he wants to marry her for years now," an insider tells OK!. "On more than one occasion he said, 'Kim, will you marry me?' He'd be dead serious if she'd say yes." After Kanye's most recent proposal, while the pair were in L.A., Kim asked him where the engagement ring was. He got down on one knee and she got embarrassed, telling him to get up, and saying that she wasn't even officially divorced yet. But Kanye wasn't kidding. He believes that, with persistence, he will eventually wear her down. "I think he believes if he asks her 100 times, then eventually she'll say yes," says the insider.
In the other part of Big Fat Rumor of the Day, it's being reported that Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez are over. But not just because of his little Tweet that got deleted last week. The streets are saying that Selena dumped Justin, after she heard rumors that he and Rihanna were getting very friendly and Selena suspected that Justin getting it in! One source even claims that the rumor of Rihanna and Justin is so prevalent that it got to Chris Brown and that's what made him blast Rihanna in that "Theraflu" remix. And while people noticed that not only did Selena not attend the Billboard Music Awards with him - because she's in Bulgaria filming - he never thanked her. Not to mention, as of this weekend, Selena stopped following Justin on On Twitter! Hmm?
Chris Brown's temper may have flared up yet again. There's a report going around that he almost started a fight in Vegas last weekend over some women. Sources say Chris was hanging out at a club called Haze on Saturday, the night before the "Billboard Music Awards". And even though he has a girlfriend, he latched onto a group of women, and partied with them for a few hours. But then they moved on to a nearby table full of guys, and Chris got, "visibly upset." He went up to the table and yelled at the guys, "Are these girls with you or with me?" A source says, "Things were close to getting extremely ugly. Then Chris’ security and club security escorted him out." Chris's rep says this didn't happen. But a rep for Haze says there WAS an incident involving Chris. He wouldn't give any details, other than to say, "Haze has a zero tolerance policy for violence."
